Viral Salmon & Rice

I know you’ve probably seen that viral salmon and rice recipe online. It all started from a girl named Emily Mariko, who posted it on Tiktok and since then, it seems that everyone has been making it. And now it was my turn! I had to put my own twist on the recipe though. I…

Pan Fried Cabbage with Mustard Seeds

I feel like cabbage is one of those really underrated vegetables, and it sometimes get a bad reputation. It’s super good for you – raw or cooked – and you can put so many different flavours on it. Today’s recipe is one from Thug Kitchen 101 cookbook. This was a really simple cabbage side that…

Mediterranean Cauliflower Rice

Happy Friday! I’m back with my second cauliflower rice recipe. If you missed my first one, earlier this week, I made Mexican cauliflower rice – definitely check it out! Today’s cauliflower rice recipe is more of a side dish, rather than a main course. However, you can easily serve it with your protein of choice…

Mexican Cauliflower Rice

I am a big fan of cauliflower. It is such a versatile vegetable and I have many blog posts that feature it! Probably my favourite preparation is making CAULIFLOWER WINGS. Check out these posts: Maple & Sriracha Cauliflower or Buffalo Cauliflower Bites. My cauliflower now was starting to go bad so I had to cut…

Split Pea Soup

I’ve got some soup for you! The last one I made was the Ginger Curry Noodle Soup which was from Thug Kitchen 101 cookbook. Today’s soup is another recipe from the same cookbook. There is something so classic and homey about split pea soup, so I was excited to make this one. The recipe was…

Smashed Potatoes

Potatoes. One of the most versatile vegetables. I have used potatoes in countless ways before, but this is one I have never tried. Smashed potatoes are made by a two step cooking process: first boiling, then baking. After the potatoes are boiled, they get “smashed” which increases the surface area and allows for them to…

Pasta Alfredo with Squash & Broccoli

So last week I posted those delicious Zoodles with Chicken and Tomatoes (link here) which was a nice, light dinner (check it out if you didn’t see it). And today, I am sharing a pasta recipe that is equally delicious but definitely not on the lighter side. This is a rich pasta dish with roasted…

Nana’s Chocolate Crunch No-Bake Cookies

Looking for a very easy treat to make? I’ve found it. This is my next recipe from Thug Kitchen 101 cookbook and they are no-bake cookies. They’re made with only 3 ingredients – chocolate, peanut butter and saltine crackers. Yes, you read that correctly, saltine crackers. I was a little skeptical of it at first…

Zoodles with Chicken & Tomatoes

Happy October everyone! Squash season is here and I can’t wait to get into those recipes! But today, I am cooking with summer squash – zucchini. Remember when spiralized veggies were super popular? I still love making them. Today’s recipe uses zucchini noodles aka zoodles. This meal was a real throw everything together and use…

Borracho Squash & Bean Burritos

I love burritos so I was very excited to make this one. This was the Borracho Squash and Bean Burrito from Thug Kitchen 101 cookbook. Can we talk about the name for a second. I had to look this up but the word ‘borracho’ actually means drunk, typically used to refer to a person. But…
